Hi, I’m Tessa! I’m an animator and Illustrator, based in Utrecht, the Netherlands.
In June 2021, I graduated with a BDes in 2D animation from the University of the Arts Utrecht.

I love to visualize stories about everyday life, emotions, and people in a light and playful way.
My own life is one of my biggest inspirations.  By approaching these topics in a light-hearted manner,
I try to put a smile on the viewers face and give them a sense of recognition.

I create my client work with the same playful approach.
By using a combination of digital and analogue techniques in both  2D animation and illustration,
I always aim to visualize a concept or story in an unique and unexpected way,  be it a post card design,
editorial illustration or explainer animation.

In the past I worked for several clients, such as Straatnieuws Utrecht, University of the Arts Utrecht, and BNNVARA.
